Brief description This project will enhance our historical understanding of a crucial stage in the colonisation of Aboriginal people. It will uncover a new corpus of historical sources which has not been subject to sustained study, and bring to light instances of nineteenth-century Aboriginal agency. Most importantly, it will highlight nineteenth-century discourses on the colonial treatment of indigenous people, and therefore enable a deeper knowledge of Indigenous Australian history to inform public debates on matters of policy, identity, and culture.
